WATCH: Peek inside the best picnic basket you’ll ever pack

We’re talking carb-conscious sticky-chicken wraps, asparagus tips with prawn terrine and kale crisps for starters.

We get it: picnics are supposed to be easy, but that doesn’t mean you can’t think beyond the ol’ baguette-and-cheese combo.

Can’t imagine a picnic without beef frikkadels or chicken drumsticks? Wrap some readymade lemon-and-parsley mini meatballs in red cabbage with some sundried tomato-and-basil cream cheese and sliced sugarsnap peas, and chargrilled sweet-chilli chicken kebabs in butter lettuce with caramelised onion dip.

Think no al fresco spread is complete without crisps? Try a packet of slow-dried salt-and-pepper kale chips.

For the die-hard carb fans coming along, throw in a couple of sesame seed breadsticks with snoek pâté and those utterly addictive tiny samoosas with a yoghurt-and-mango pickle. Because, it’s all about balance, right?
